About

We are the Kings, a family living out our dreams of doing whatever we want…currently traveling the globe with a 4 & 2 year old.

In May of 2010 we sold most of our things in the US, hopped on a plane to Costa Rica expecting to be there for 6 months.   In those six months our minds and attitudes changed.  We no longer wanted to settle for living the ‘American Dream‘ and wanted to pursue discovering the world and the people that inhabit it.  One day we decided to record our journey on this beautiful blog about our extraordinarily normal life trotting around this globe.  We’ve only just begun.
